Monday September 9, 2019 - Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, Musalia Mudavadi, has responded to Deputy President William Ruto’s call to join him ahead of the 2022 presidential race.

On Friday, Ruto, who was speaking in Vihiga County, asked Mudavadi to join him in the race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.

"I toured here before in 2007 and campaigned for Mudavadi to be Vice President.”

“We were also campaigning for Agwambo [Raila Odinga] to be the president.”

“However, our efforts were futile," Ruto recalled.

According to Ruto, a political alliance between the two of them would guarantee them victory in the 2022 General Elections.

But Mudavadi, in a statement issued by his Press Secretary, Kibisu Kabatesi, termed Ruto’s gesture as “cheeky and ridiculous”

Kabatesi said his boss was not interested in joining Ruto's bandwagon saying that they have different manifestos.

“Ruto’s proposition is cheeky and ridiculous and cannot sell.”

“No serious Kenyan can buy into that gimmick,” Kabatesi wrote.

Mudavadi further explained that his agenda and convictions are miles apart from Ruto’s, whose Jubilee Government, he says, has driven the country into a serious economic crisis through debt and corruption.
